One weird bunny

It's Easter--and in honor of the day i thought I'd share with you one of the most disturbing images from your diarist's childhood:

For some reason I found this maniacal-looking rabbit a bit creepy...for me it was a bogey along the lines of that clown doll thing in "Poltergeist". And this was supposed to be a charming kid's record(my dim memories are of a generic rendition of "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" and a few weakly performed versions of songs from "Bambi")!

Looking at it now, I'm not sure why I thought it was pure evil, exactly--but I suspect a Kimball influence. Who else would design such a thing?

I think the design of the bunny's just kind of goofy and cute. It's the coloring that makes it strange.

Yeah, There's something unsettling about the unusually dark, contrasting shading. The blue eyes, the green background, slanted text. And what the heck is a rabbit playing a piano anyway?

He' working out a melody for "Little Bunny Foo-Foo."

"...Pickin' up the field mice, and boppin' 'em on the head!"

(insert sinister bunny laugh here)
